The quality of the story is excellent on many levels - adventure, gender identity issues, apocalyptic threats, and most of all, as simply brilliant writing. EJ Squires is a growing master of this genre and certainly an author who deserves a very large audience.This futuristic novel by EJ Squires had me thinking about three well-loved fierce heroines of our time - Hua Mulan (Ballad of Mulan) & Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games) and Lisbeth Salander (Girl With Dragon Tattoo). I admit, at first I thought this was another Hunger Games in the making, but I was mistaken when I found myself immersed from the first chapter to the last.Savage Run is a book for all readers. Those looking for romance and friendship, a tell tale heart of loss and love and regret. It also keeps those in need of elements of danger, adventure, and heroic duties flipping pages to find out what happens to their beloved main character and the villains she finds herself pitted against. Definitely get your hands on a copy of Savage Run today.
